Chain Gang Is a series of flat masks with a different pattern on each face. Chain Gang now lives in Georgia.

Maybe it’s a Steampunk Cat. Stoneware mask sculpted, stamped, doo-dad designs added and after a bisque fire, it was washed with black iron oxide, allowed to dry and then a clear glaze was painted on and back into the kiln it went for a cone 6 firing. “Species Unknown” is 11″ long, 5″ wide and 3″ deep. Signed and dated and ready to hang.
